Forget Jimmy Choos, THIS is style ...

Over at, they have a special on "Chemo Style." Lots of very cool women showing how they do it. Bald, tattooed, wigged or hatted (bewigged? Behatted?), these women have class.

Ladies, remember being a teenage girl? Yes, you do, because I heard that collective "ugh." Well, I've had the privilege of getting to know two very cool teen girls, due to our common "interest" in Wilms' Tumor. Neither has had an easy path. Not that anyone with cancer does, but for some, it's uh, less easy, than others. Stem cell rescue and transplants and all that good stuff. And, of course, they lost their hair. Remember how YOU had a cow over a bad haircut when you were 16? I know I did.

I won't invade their privacy by linking to their private websites. Just trust me when I tell you that they could make baldness and/or wigs the hottest fashion. Because they have continued *living* while being in treatment. Even going to dances, after begging their oncologists for permission. (I would say that their escorts were princes, too, but really, they were lucky to be in the company of these fabulous girl-women.)

STYLE. I've learned a lot about that in a year.
